Wat Tham Chao Phu Kha – Photo Gallery

Sakon Nakhon has several famous mountain cave temples, such as Wat Tham Kham and Wat Tham Pha Daen, where long ago Thai monks took shelter in caves while wandering the forests to meditate and practice the dharma. But there are also many lesser known cave temples around the Phu Phan Mountain range, such as Wat Tham Chao Phu Kha (วัดถ้ำเจ้าภูข้า) in the Phanna Nikhom district of Sakon Nakhon.

This unique hilltop temple honors a monk named Phu Kha, a member of the Phu Thai tribe and a century-old group of monks who were ordained in white robes rather than the traditional saffron robes that monks wear in Thailand. To read our full profile of this temple, go to: Wat Tham Chao Phu Kha.
